Celesteela raid counters

Going into the Celesteel Raid, trainers will need a well-rounded team of Pokemon with type effective features. Overall, Celesteela is the most well-rounded of the Ultra Beasts. Fortunately, it is easy to remove due to its vulnerabilities. The raid can easily be completed by a team of 2 to 4 trainers; a team of 4 to 8 trainers can take it down faster and a team of 8 to 20 trainers can burn through it giving a better completion bonus.

User Mega Pokemon such as Mega Charizard, Mega Houndoom, Mega Manectric and Mega Ampharos will make the fight much easier for most trainers. Ultimately you will use either fire or electric type Pokemon.
